Trieste is Against the Passage of Tanks of the Yugoslav Army
Trieste, 6 October - Trieste adamantly repudiates the prospect of tanks of the Yugoslav army, which are lined-up at railroad stations in Slovenia, of boarding ships in Trieste and then being transported to Bar. This decision was made today by the Trieste Municipal Council. After a long and heated debate they approved a resolution, which authorizes the Mayor to seek other alternative solutions. All other proposals were rejected, also a proposal made by representative of the Slovenian community, Aleš Lokar, that all the tanks should remain in Slovenia under the supervision of the European Observer Mission until the fighting ceases. Representatives of the "Trieste List" and neofascists have been assembled in protest in front of the meeting hall since yesterday. They threatened to physically rise against the transportation of tanks through Trieste and demanded the removal of all communist symbols (memorial monuments to the fallen during World War II in Slovenian villages and in the area of Trieste), as well as the name of the primary school in Zgonik near Trieste "1st May 1945" (the day when the Yugoslav forces marched into Trieste). Italian fascist representative, Gianfranco Fini said, among other things, that he would agree to the acknowledgement of Slovenia and Croatia, if these two republics were to return Istra to Italy.
